The German Consulate supported setting up a 100 kg biogas plant at Mahabodhi School in Mysuru. The National Institute of Engineering, Mysuru and M/S Venison Green Solution Ltd. were involved in the process of commissioning of the plant.
The center for renewable energy and sustainable technology of the National Institute of Engineering (NIE-CREST) took the initiative to design, develop and install the biogas plant in the hostel of Mahabodhi Carla school.
The biogas plant uses biodegradable kitchen waste generated from the students’ hostel, the fuel thus produced is used for cooking and the slurry as manure for the garden. 100 Kgs. of biodegradable waste is processed every day at the biogas plant. The plant reduces LPG costs as well as is a solution for waste management in the campus. The campus of the Carla Students' hostel houses 186 children hailing from different parts of India.
The Consul General inaugurated the biogas plant on 7th January 2016 in Mysuru. He said, “I am very happy to be here today to inaugurate together with the children this small kitchen waste biogas plant and I am also happy that we from the German Consulate could contribute in a small way through our micro project fund to help realize this project”.
